We visited here on this Thursday afternoon and loved the happy hour. If you purchase the local port wine by the glass then you get a free small appetizer. It was just what we were looking for before dinner.


The staff was helpful and spoke fluent English. The waitress even helped us with questions we had about the language and local culture.

We enjoyed the fried fish bites and the port wine. They even provided free olives, bread, and a home made spread for the table.

This restaurant is on the banks of the River Douro in the Main area of the port wine houses. Arrived at the restaurant about 730pm. This is early for dinner in Portugal but ensured we got a good table. We had our meal as we sat and watched the sun set. Nice atmosphere with live music from nearby cafe bars. The best bit was the view across the river to the Historic centre of Porto. Food and service was also excellent.

Me and my husband are visiting Porto, we were looking where to sit outside and have a evening meal. This little restaurant on the river side, nothing special from outside, but Sofia and Daniela welcoming and atteding. I have food allergy and my order was made from scratch. Food and service was excellent. If we will come back to Porto,we will have dinner here again.

Encouraged by the positive ratings in Tripadvisor we gave this restaurant. Overall this was rather a disappointing experience. We ordered grilled cobfish with onions, sardines with fries, green beans and salads as side-dishes. And sth. to drink. While the restaurant was nearly empty we were sitting at our empty table and our drinks arrived after the dishes. All dishes were very, very oily. Our codfish was bitter burned on the outside and not truly cooked on the inside. Beside it was too salty to say the least. The best part were the green beans, though very oily too. Overall a very disappointing experience.

Dear Jarmo,

I am sorry that you felt that way about your experience. It is not our way we want things.
The room is always with the air condition on at 27 ºC which allow us to insure a 24 ºC in the room. I don't have the information that we had 1 day without this service, but that's the only way it could happened.
Daniela was the waitress that serve you that day and she is a very good professional and very friendly just like you said.
Thank you for your review and we hope that you will come over again to change your mind.

Best Regards

Pedro Menezes
